NPR's All Things Considered last night included a story on "Eau de Borough", which reported on Eau de New York, the new Bond No. 9 fragrance collection designed by Laurice Rahme that includes different perfumes for 17 different neighborhoods in New York City. People's connections to places are often displayed, explicitly or implicitly, in the visual and auditory domains, e.g., through the clothing people wear clothing, the accents they speak with, or the music they listen to. This new perfume collection is scheduled to debut this May; it will be interesting to see -- and smell -- how a sense of place can be captured and displayed in the olifactory domain.
